Collateral Consequences of a DUI Conviction
For Military Personnel, the Collateral Consequences of a DUI are severe. According to Rob Leonard, author of the Georgia DUI Blog, these consequences can include: 1) No promotions 2) No leave or passes allowed; 3) No transfer or reassignment; 4) No selection to attend military schools; 5) Barred from Re-Enlistment forcing a discharge at end of enlistment; 6) Mandatory referral to alcohol or substance abuse program; 7) Administrative discharge action, with likelihood of stigmatizing Less than Honorable Discharge, which denies veteran’s benefits, including Educational Assistance (G.I. Bill); 8) Court-Martial, which may impose confinement, forfeitures, reduction in rank, and either a Bad Conduct Discharge or Dishonorable Discharge, both of which are stigmatizing and disqualifying for military and veterans benefits. Please refer to the Georgia DUI Blog for additional military collateral consequences.
